Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.

Whenever there’s a Windows update, my computer goes bonkers.  So I’ve learned to stop whatever I’m doing when that happens, close everything down, and download the update.

Unfortunately, this doesn’t stop the damage that can result.  Specifically, I tend to lose documents I’ve stored in Notepad (I don’t have Word) — letters, research, etc.  So I’ve learned that for the really important stuff, I need to copy and paste it into an email, then store it in the cloud.  Well, I’m trying to learn this…

I’ve been working for weeks on a letter for my Unum long term disability case, and I’m facing an important deadline.  And what do you know, the latest update totally erased all my work.  The document is gone.  Dust.  Vanished.  And of course, I didn’t save it in the cloud.  Because I’m stupid.  Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.

And I just don’t know how I’m going to recreate it, especially before the deadline…  When you’re in constant pain, it’s so hard to care about shit like this…

In other words, I believe I am fucked.

And computers can really suck:

  1. Did you update from 7 to 8? If so, it’s possible that your documents folder is saved in a folder named Windows.Old. There should be a “Users” folder in Windows. Old. Open this and look for your name. If you saved to a documents folder then that’s where you may find the lost files…
